1 out of 5 eggsDeeply disappointed

Pros: When it did work, it was great.

Cons: Overheated, obviously due to factory floor deficient manufacturing. Tech support even admitted it was defective.

Other Thoughts: Ran into severe family troubles w/ my mother having a stroke and haven't been able to afford shipping it back. Now I got a high end paperweight.

1 out of 5 eggsThoroughly disappointed

Pros: It came in a box.

Cons: I ordered this card because it seemed to be a great value. I purchased it to replace my Radeon HD6950, which was and is a great card.

The First card they sent me was defective. The monitor doesn't even recognize it has been plugged into a card, and I followed the instructions to the letter. This didn't bother me, dead cards happen. Newegg was great at handling the replacement.

The replacement card is also dead-on-arrival. Won't even boot up. My old card and on-board graphics work just fine, no problems. When I plug this card in - nothing. I have reached out to their tech support. If they do not prove to be EXTREMELY useful I will likely never do business with VisionTek again.

Will update once they contact me.

Other Thoughts: New Egg was remarkably helpful and I have never been disappointed with their service.

1 out of 5 eggsWould you like to void the warranty?

Pros: It got the normal r9 270x performance.

Cons: Sure it has a lifetime warranty but that's kind of useless. Looking at the card sideways revealed there was barely any thermal paste used. I could see light between a majority of the heatsink and processor. I couldn't fix it without voiding the warranty though. As a result it ran really hot, needing the fan to crank up high, and on top of it being loud it was an annoying loud.

I put it under some stress gaming and it failed. I could have used the warranty that comes with it but I felt that would have resulted in an endless cycle of RMA's. I returned it.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than nothing!

Pros: -Not a red cooler, it is black with 2 fans
-Plays all my games, with my setup, at 60 FPS+ on Ultra
-The kh/s on LTC mining isnt too bad at ~420 o/c'ed slightly
-Stays nice and cool
-Lifetime warranty
-Runs great on my Silverstone 500W PSU

Cons: Really only complaint I have with this card is when it starts working, I get this weird noise coming from the card and hope it don't affect anything down the line. It runs great in games and no slow downs in mining. Lifetime warranty will take care of me...hopefully.

Other Thoughts: AMD FX-6100
8GB GSkill Ares 1600
MSI 760GM-P23
